Just 15 minutes into the game and against the run of play Worthing took the lead from a corner.

Lavant started the second half strongly and got their reward in the 60th minute when Ayers intercepted the ball in the Lavant box, played a neat one-two with Sheppard and then ran the length of the pitch to beat the Worthing keeper.

With 25 minutes remaining Worthing scored the winner when a free-kick was lofted high into the Lavant box.
